Jumping Through It #Abc123challenge

The Easter holidays has almost come to an end now, the Easter bunny did not visit us, but the Robot has discovered his love of jumping so we have our own bunny.  I swear he is trying to hop everywhere.  It’s been a weird old slog the past 3 weeks …

It’s Definitely Spring 

The Letter I for a title today, it’s a bit of a cheat word for this weeks abc123challenge round-up.  We’re not as organised this week either. My best friend came to visit us on Friday so I’ve not had the usual time to write.  I’m sat in a cafe with …

I is for Ice Play

The last time we did the #ABC123Challenge we did ice play for I. This time round was a completely different experience. Ice play is more fun the older you are! The set up for ice play is one to prepare in advance.  Out freezer is in the cellar which is …

It’s Hard to Put My Finger On It

I’ve gone for a walk. Left the kids with Dave and headed out alone with my thoughts. It’s sunny the birds are singing the air is crisp, a slight breeze. It’s a perfect spring day. I’m sat on my favourite bench (the one with the little house), ducks are approaching, …

Holiday Special – London #abc123challenge

H is for Holiday!  We went to London for a long weekend last week.  It has to be our first proper break away since baby CABS was born and it was well overdue.  The short Winter months with a newborn have dragged and we can see the spring in plain …

H is for Home Play Day

Sometimes you just get stuck at home on a home play day.  We’re not very good at being in all day.  If it’s the weekend then it’s even worse. Dave is hopeless at staying in and we’re always on the go at the weekend because of it. There are times …

G is For Growing Cress

Before I had kids I used to allotment and volunteer in GirlGuiding.  I always used to want to share my love of the outdoors with my Brownies and Guides and would often find ways to get them growing things.  Most often growing cress! Unfortunately due to moving and the demands …

Fun and Fast #ABC123Challenge

It’s Friday when I normally try write-up my round-ups. The perfect day for a letter F.  As usual the week has flown by faster than ever. We’ve had plenty of fun but I clicked my neck one morning half way through the week so I’ve had a not so pleasant …

Baby Toy Carrier

Baby Toy Carrier It’s been something that I’ve wanted to make the Robot for so long now.  As an avid baby wearer I always carried the Robot and now he can walk he often wants to copy what he sees around him. His Mummy carrying his baby sister!  It took …

The Stick Man at Brockholes Nature Reserve 

The Stick Man at Brockholes Nature Reserve The other day which feels like a long time ago now the Robot, CABS and I went on an adventure to find the Stick man at Brockholes Nature Reserve.  It was half term for us and we were meeting up with friends who …

F is for Foam Shapes

This post is not for the faint hearted! It’s not even really the best how to post.  Pinterest perfect it is not.  It’s an experience, one that makes me think why do I even bother.  Foam shapes, no, no, no. This reminds me a bit of the time I tried …

Encouragingly Excited #ABC123Challenge

These weeks do just keep flying by.  We’re in the midst of March now and baby CABS turned 4 months old.  It’s crazy but I am trying to enjoy every minute of it.  Dave has just taken the Robot out on the back of my bike for a ride out …

D is for Dancing

There are lots of reasons why I love dancing and non of them are to do with actually knowing how to dance.  I possibly went to one or two dance lessons as a kid because my friend did but I soon hot footed it out the door when I could. …

2018 The Year I Create

It seems that with my move to including Two Tiny Makes on my blog is the move to being more creative.  This blog never had a set destination and although I’ve pretty much always dreamed of being a craft blogger I never really got round to it. Now that the …
